For the first time at the Seasplash Festival, will perform the Patois Brothers, band from Venice (Italy). Patois Brothers was created in 2010, inspired by artists such as Bob Marley, Johnny Clarke and Black Uhur. With their prestigious performance in Croatia we had the opportunity to attend the last year’s Seasplash x Overjam Pre-Party at Club Kotač in Pula. Their name is a tribute to the Jamaican language and in the same way that Patois originates from many different languages, their music is inspired by combining the many different sounds of Reggae to create own original sound. Their first album, “Mighty Ways”, was released in 2015 and their songs spread powerful musical and textual messages about positive social changes and education through music.
In 2017 their second album “Wise And WIld” was released, with 12 original songs on which they collaborated with producer and musician Daniel Boyle in London, to get the original vintage sound. Boyle produced the album on analog machines from the 1970s at Rolling Lion Studio, the same machines that were used by the Jamaican legends of roots rock reggae. Whilst maintaining the band’s own unique self-produced style, this album showcases some altogether different styles – including an important collaboration with Max Romeo, Roots Reggae legend and a great source of inspiration for the band. The collaborations with the Jamaican singer Charmax Music brings the band interest from overseas, heralding in future new opportunities. Each of the twelve new tracks creates vivid concepts, often forgotten by “new music” or perhaps unexplored. Respect, wisdom and spirituality mark the moral aspect of the LP: the triumph of these values and the teachings that the Patois Brothers have received along their musical journey and through life.
